Ok, I just had to share one of my favorite cards from the Build Your Stash card class by mail! Check out this fun Sending Love card featuring the Jars of Love stamp set! When I originally started designing the class, I had been planning on focusing on the Better Together stamp set – because it is a great sentiment set – as well as the Cupcakes & Carousels designer paper stack. But when I pulled out this sunburst patterned paper from the pack, things just started going in a totally different direction. And in the end, I felt the … Read More
Happy Valentine’s Day! I am running so far behind but I wanted to make sure to get this post up for you… not just because I have a special Valentine’s Day Promotion at the end of the post! But I also love this technique – it was one of the designer paper techinques from January’s Terrific Techniques class and I thought you might all enjoy it too.
When I saw the Happy Hearts embossing folder was on the Weekly Deals this week, I remembered I had been wanting to make a video tutorial for this fun background that is AWESOME with this folder. Unfortunately, life got crazy and then I got sick this weekend, so it took until this morning for me to get it recorded and posted. I also am experimenting with my video setup, so hopefully it all worked out ok. But I really wanted to share this cool technique for double embossing your cards so you get the cool layered pattern for your … Read More

Tips for making this card: The sentiments from the Seasonally Scattered stamp set are pretty big and the letters … Read More
I have had a TON of cards sitting on my camera begging to get edited and shared with the world, and finally I had time yesterday to spend most of the day editing them.

I hope you don’t mind one more Cross My Heart card sample. I know, I’ve been using it a lot this week, but that is just because I went on a creating spree with the set and most of the cards I have photographed right now use it. But hopefully by now you can see some fun ways to use it! I have to admit, it was fun to take images from the same set and try to create totally different looking cards. You should try it some time! Anyway, here is today’s card: So, this all started with me … Read More
